Random Dozen

Wednesday means random dozen! Link up over at Linda's.

1. Do you do garage sales? If so, tell me about one great find. If not, tell me why not.

I love garage sales, okay I love the idea of finding that FIND. I never do though, it always seems to be a bunch of junk, what's worse is when I go through the work of having one and NOTHING sells. I take care of my things, I would never think of putting a price tag on something that I myself wouldn't buy. Case in point our 30 year old full size mattress set, that had rips in the box spring, well worn...we had it in the back of the garage, somewhat hidden because it was well yucky and we were waiting for clean-up day to get rid of it. Someone saw it and asked if it was for sale. I looked at that stunned, thinking who on earth would want to buy that?
"I'll give you $50 for it." That was the ONLY thing that sold in the three days. I had homemade crafts, stamp sets I was trying to sell, perfect condition clothes, some nice pots and pans, a full set of dishes, I mean nice stuff and all that sold was a nasty old mattress set that we hadn't even put out. GO figure! We did end up giving all of our stuff away to bridging and Lupus.

2. Name the last thing you fixed.
You mean the last thing I fixed or the last thing I put at the top of my hubby's to~do list that actually got finished?  Me~My coffee this morning! Hubby~the truck's brakes.

3. Name your A) Favorite item of makeup OR B) Favorite tool
Eye brow pencil, without it I look like someone who got drunk at a party and as a result got her eyebrows shaved off. (they are THAT light) My favorite tool, and I'm not  afraid to use it is the hammer. See, when you run with a hammer in your hand people tend to get out of your way. ;) And I say that with love.

4. Which room in your home needs organizing more than any other?
 The foyer. My daughter and I have too many pairs of shoes that don't like to be put in bins, because well, we'd forget we have those cute ones to match this outfit and we'd end up wearing the wrong ones. We've just come to live with the shoe parade.

5. Which room could use re-decorating?
THE WHOLE HOUSE!!!!!!!!! Do you connections with Nate Berkus?

6. Share something unique about your town.
This is a bad time to ask me this, I'm having problems with the school bus/ and district right now and I can think of nothing nice to say. And Momma taught me if you can't say anything nice; drink a malt. You can't talk through a straw. Now if only we had a good malt shop, that'd be something to share huh?

7. If you could send a one-sentence message to your great-grandchild, what would it be?
Sass runs in the family; Embrace it!
8. Do you Facebook?
What?! We're not friends already?

9. Describe your favorite shoes.
Flip flops. The fit, the are easy on, easy off. They come in a variety of colors... In the winter I wear Uggs.

10. Do you listen to more talk radio or more music radio? What kind of station is it?
I used to be all music, then I started listening to a talk station for ladies in our area. They crack me up! But sometimes they get too gossipy and then I turn back on the music. As my son said in the car the other day "I like country Mom."

11. How far would you travel for a really good (favorite) meal?
Less then a half hour, anything longer wouldn't be pleasant for my date. When I get hungry I get crank~kee!

12. If you were totally honest with yourself (and us) what should you probably be doing right now instead of blogging?
 If I weren't doing this right now, I would be crying and cursing, getting myself all worked up over this bus route thing. Trust me THIS is SO much better for me!


  1. Yeah, my house could probably use a make over too.

  2. I don't have kids in school here but the bus routes have been a hot topic in my area too (I'm outside of NY, not Boston) usually takes a couple of weeks for the bus stuff to settle down or to get busses added or routes changed. Hope it works out soon for you!

  3. Sara, I feel your garage sale pain! I had one with a friend last summer, and I think I made 20 dollars in three days. :( At the end we were practically giving stuff away.

    And I LOVE that saying about drinking a malt if you can't say something nice! :D

  4. Yep, flip-flops need we say more. Would wear them year around if I could get by with it.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your answers! You have the same sense of humor that I do, and it is very refreshing!


I love hearing from you!
